Sports Illustrated celebrates the iconic figures that have held this role in a pro football compendium unlike any ever assembled. This book examines every aspect of this storied position through original essays, classic prose from the magazine's rich archives, and insights from Hall of Fame players, all set against the most striking photographs ever taken on the subject. Every record holder is represented and reevaluated. The big arms, the elusive scramblers, the two-minute magicians, the crossover cultural stars, and even the notorious flameouts, are all showcased. This comprehensive tribute to the game's most essential position is a must-have for any NFL fan.
